Bringing together the best of Westmoreland County brewers.
Celebrating the businesses making their mark on a river town.

Located along the Youghiogheny River half way between Ohiopyle and Pittsburgh, West Newton's 200 year+ history has seen industries come and go. Not unlike other Western PA towns, West Newton experienced a shift of businesses away from its main street and business districts over the past several decades. 

Today, as a GAP trail town, West Newton is on the edge of a renaissance. Forged on the Yough celebrates the eco-tourism the river and trail provide to outfitters and small businesses of West Newton.
